I need help designing a box for 15" treo csx . i already built a 4 cu-ft box tuned to 35hz but sounded like ****. Can anyone recommend a box size and tuning geared towards a daily driver .

What exactly did you not like about the sound you were getting?

Weird, sounds like a sub problem and not a box problem. Are you sure it wasn't tinsel lead slap? Are they sewn into the spider or just hangin there?

post up the design. also was the noise worse from the sub at higher frequencies compared to lower? if so you my friend might have a burnt coil and or coil rub. check the coils with a DMM to c what they read in comparison to proposed impedance.

the only problem i think i came across is the wiring to the amp . ther r two sets of positive and negative terminals and usually i would brigde them but the wiring diagram said nothing to do so

what kind of noise was this? did it rattle randomly or was it during a certain note of a certain song? all the time?

found my problem . the dustcap was coming off so i glued the cap back on and no more noise and works perfect now . but i noticed i wasnt able to hit the low notes like before any suggestions on a new box design ?

If you're not hitting the low notes like you want to, then it seems like tuning lower is the logical answer. Have you used test tones to see where it is you're actually not happy with the output? "low tones" can be in different areas according to different people.
